any more. john mccain and lindsey graham because every damn sunday, you turn on the sunday shows. who has their ugly mugs on t.v.? john mccain and lindsey graham on every one of the freakin shows. sometimes more than one. but if they are not on fox, they are on abc. if they are not on ab. c, they are on the "meet the press." if they are not on "meet the press" they are on quite state of the union." they are always dumping on everything obama is doing over and over and over. there are 100 senators. right? alt every sunday do we have to here that idiot lindsey graham from south carolina who has become the biggest scourge of the republican party, the u.s. senate and john mccain who ish something maybe to say 20 years ago but he doesn't have today. it's the same ol' gabble. there they were again yesterday, trotting them out, lindsey graham was on face the nation, and john mccain on fox news sunday. so lindsey graham still doesn't know enough about benghazi and he is not going to let chuck hagel go forward unless we find out some more. >> i don't think
at 8:00 eastern on american history tv on c-span3. >> john mccain's 2000 campaign when he ran for president is the most memorable campaign of any that i have never covered or been around. we will never see it again. here he was facing george w. bush, who had all the characters of the republican party backing him and all the money, and john mccain went out and held 114 town meetings, and he stayed there until every question was answered. you could see the light bulb going on over people's heads asking about a patient's bill of rights, and john mccain would say, "we are not going to get a patient's bill of rights as long as my party is owned by the insurance companies and the wned by others." there was a candor and openness no one had seen before and no one has seen since. >> longtime columnist and political analyst mark shields on his career in politics and the washington press corps sunday night at 8:00 on c-span's "q&a." >> "washington journal" continues. host: kathleen strottman is executive director of the congressional coalition on adoption institute and is here to talk to

the whole thing. >> please do. stephanie: last week, john mccain was all elder states man-y. that was his policy last week. respecting the penalty's prerogative in making nominations role and advicing consent, blocking nomination is just not done. it's just not done. >> hmm ok. stephanie: now after saying just days ago they should not filibuster mccain said he hasn't made his mind up. he appears to be aligning himself with his closest little buddy, lindsey graham. they are so gilligan and the captain, those two. who had been demanding more information on benghazi, which he has nothing to do with. >> they're more like thurston h. oh well and lovie. stephanie: benghazi is cat nip to the tea baggers and he's trying to keep him from getting primary challenged in 2014. that's what that's about. >> huh? >> how did your little plan go to get susan rice? how did that go?

to be confirmed. one thing that's interesting, john mccain, remember, has said that he believes chuck hagel will be confirmed ultimately. john mccain, by the way, was not one of those senators who wrote that letter to the white house asking the president to withdraw chuck hagel's nomination. >> kristen welker e thanks so much with you and we'll check back with you later in the show. >> sounds good. >>> after nearly 40 years in public office, defense secretary leon panetta may have thought he'd be retired by now, but he thought wrong. panetta is still on the job. at a nato brussels in conference, a conference that was supposed to be intended by former senator chuck hagel. hagel has not taken the mantel as they blocked him heading out to recess. mallika henderson, political reporter at "the washington post" and john stanton, washington bureau chief, thank you both for being here. >> john, i want to start with you. citing panetta is not the man that the audience thought they'd be hearing from. does washington's ability portray any weakness to the international community? >> i don't know if it'
senator dianne feinstein and carl levin and john mccain says is grossly inaccurate. i'm having a little trouble here. inaccurate and misleading. even going so far as to denounce the movie in a letter to sony pictures. now even hollywood seems to be turning its back on the film. daniel henninger, deputy editorial page editor for "the wall street journal" turning into a little bit after movie critic, daniel, in your latest column. why are you bothered by the back and forth about this film? >> i am bothered by it, jenna, i was in downtown manhattan the morning of september 11th and as well as many other people and experienced it first-hand. this movie finally closes the circle, i think for a lot of us on that event by giving us the story of the tracking down and killing of usama bin laden. and so people were taking this movie in, victims and families of 9/11 it, in that context and then senator feinstein, levin and john mccain sort of belly-slam into the middle of it and decide, oh, the movie isn't about closing the circle on 9/11 and the london bombings and the madrid bombings. it will be

that would be an unprecedented effort. when john mccain points that out, you know, seriously. >> huh? >> stephanie: senator carl levin said their demands are beyond the scope of what has been asked traditionally of former nominees. a point echoed by john mccain. >> eh? >> did i or didn't i? wait. what day is it? who am i for and against? who am i mad at this week so i can choose my position on who i have a grudge against? >> no, sir one should impugn his character and integrity. they were accusing him of lying. >> of colluding with iran against the interests of the american people. i mean dick cheney went on -- i guess it was a fox interview. can't go anywhere else. but he was -- his big thing was that the president's choices including hagel are a specific strategy to endanger the american people and undermine be. it's doing it. >> stephanie: he can talk because he served so patrioticically in vietnam. >> no terrorist things happened on cheney's watch though. >> you're nothing. >> nothing bad happened. >> no wars of choice. we made sure that our soldiers had everything they needed wh
